Misty was rescued on September 13, 2012, from an unpleasant situation in Prince George, wherein she was forced to live tied up on a four-foot chain outdoors.
At the time she was removed by our Animal Proctection Officers, this precious young lady had no food or water and was found nursing her five puppies. Once in our care at the BC SPCA North Cariboo & District Branch, she and her puppies received the veterinary care and the basic needs they required.
Based on a physical examination, a negative energy balance was determined to be the probable cause of her emaciation. However, her prognosis is excellent; with appropriate care Misty will be more than happy to be in a loving home with people who care for her.
Misty's estimated age is between two and three years. Misty has been spayed and ready to be adopted in to a deserving, loving home. A behaviour counselling session with our adoption staff is necessary before adoption.
Due to being under socialized at a younger age, Misty can be fearful as such she needs to be introduced to people and new situations slowly. She'll need a more quieter environment and gentle handling by a confident guardian(s).
She is best suited to a home with experienced adults familiar with teaching basic obedience and loose leash training. In addition, she will need to be provided with a calm and consistent routine that helps her overcome any anxious behaviour.
Even though Misty has lived with other dogs, she can be nervous and/or submissive around unfamiliar ones. She should be introduced slowly to dogs and rewarded for relaxed behaviour and play. With a committed family, we have know doubt Misty will fit in just fine.
